Choose Welcoming

Folk etymology holds that the word sophomore, a noun typically ascribed to a student in their second year of high school or college, is a hybrid of the roots sophos, “wise,” and moros, meaning “foolish or dull.” But are all sophomores “wise fools”?

One simple choice of a high school sophomore demonstrated a wisdom and kindness beyond his years—he was nobody’s fool.

And you can choose to follow suit.
